Because it will be the only fight he can generate that kind of money. If May loses it is over for him. That 0 keeps his career interesting. SO if Manny fights the one person that can beat him and he loses he will be second best and they know May will be the top dog. So why fight the seond best when you can get twice as much fighting the top dog. I will say this his market will go down. It will not be an end all to his career but the interest will not be generated to him like it is now. By them not fighting generates interest to the hope of them fighting. If Pac loses what does he have to prove? Beating, Khan, Berto, Ortiz etc? My question if he loses to May what else does he have to look forward too? And vica versa? A rematch maybe, it will depend how each guy wins/loses. Can you understand where I am coming from?
Okay, I caught your drift at the end. Whew! You are right, neither one of them have another "money-generating"
opponent to look forward to after they fight eachother. I cant necessarily agree that it will be the end of their careers if one of them were to lose. If either were to lose, it would definitely be a rematch and possibly a rubber match.
If FMJ loses, it will be a new and painfully humbling situation, but he would look at his paycheck, suck it up and sign for a rematch. The only way a rematch wont happen is if, May loses, and then he is offered less money in the rematch. This would be grounds for him to raise all hell and find a reason to refuse a rematch.
If Pac loses, then he would surely be upset, but it wouldn't be a new situation for him. He would look at his paycheck, suck it up, and sign for the rematch as well.
You got good ol' Sergio out there willing to kill himself to come down to "150" to fight either of these guys
The weight drain woul dmake his less effective and FMJ would probably just box this guy, because slugging with him is just not smart. If he fights Pac at that ridiculous weight, it would be somewhat of a Pacquiao/De La Hoya repeat...may not as bad though.
